Henniker Plasma, an established leading UK manufacturer of plasma treatment systems, were approached by EPIC to provide them with a plasma technology solution.

Wayne Loschi, EPIC Centre Director, explains why they felt the acquisition of a Henniker System would best serve their current users and in addition attract more tech businesses to the region;

“Historically Henniker has worked with numerous academic institutes and industrial companies to develop processes from inception to completion, making them the ideal candidate.”

Wayne Loschi, EPIC Centre Director.

Henniker’s successes as a provider of plasma technology are built around an exceptional body of knowledge and expertise in surface engineering for cleaning, activation and coating applications.

“Henniker welcomed the opportunity to provide the Centre with the HPT-200 plasma treatment system, hoping to widen not only EPIC’s capabilities but in turn increase awareness of the technology.”

Gill Bolton Marketing & Comms Manager, Henniker Plasma.

Plasma Technology explained

Plasma technology has been an important production tool for more than 30 years in the fabrication of microelectronic devices. Over this period, the technology has also permeated a much broader range of industries including automotive, medical device, textiles, and aerospace to name but a few.

Plasma treatments are used to alter the surface properties of a wide range of materials to make them easier to bond, glue, and paint. By treating parts, they both clean and activate the surface, improving their adhesion characteristics.

Today Henniker plasma technology is routinely used in academic institutes and industrial partners across the UK and is evolving into a global brand.

Future endeavours

Both parties look forward to the opportunities this collaboration will bring to the Electronics and Photonics UK Community.
